During this correction, and especially since the beginning of March, growth stocks outperformed value stocks, and large caps outperformed small caps.

Although European equities finished the year on a relative outperformance compared with the United States (-13.4%) and emerging markets (-15.1%)1, the year was still a source of concern for investors, who are now asking questions about what may arise in 2023.
